Happy 2017 BSB Readers! To ring in the New Year, we’re featuring a stunning wintery wedding! Bennett and Jennifer created the perfect winter wonderland in less than three months with the help of their family and friends. I positively love their creative outdoor photos and how Jennifer incorporated family heirlooms into her bridal attire. And how fun are the pinecone fire starters? What a perfect gift for the season and the setting. Enjoy this stunning, snowy wedding! xoxo, Jessica

CASCADE, IDAHO|  PRIVATE RESIDENCE & THE AMERICAN LEGION HALL

 

What was your budget?

 

We started wedding planning in October with $10,000 in mind for the budget. However, things start to add up, and we ended up spending closer to $12,000.  Our largest expense was at the Legion Hall for the reception, where we spent over $4000 on the menu, which included Cornish game hens, potatoes, green beans, stuffed mushrooms, and rolls for 200 people.  Also included in that total was beer, wine, and champagne for all, although we had quite a bit of wine left.  Another large expense was the photography (about $1800), which was 100% worth it!

Here’s a breakdown of the rest of the budget:

My bouquet and flowers for boutonnieres (My mother in law and a friend made those) and décor: $200

Cake and cupcakes:$400

DJ: $350

Party favor supplies (we made pine cone fire starters):$50

Chair and tablecloth rental:$300

Décor (electronic candles, batteries, curtain lights for arbor, bottles, vases/lighted sticks:$600

Flower girls/ring bearer attire:$310

Bridesmaids accessories:$420

Groomsmen attire: $780

Groom attire:$550

Bride (Essence of Australia dress, shoes, tights, boots, coat):$1600

 

 

How many guests did you have?

We had about 100 guests at the ceremony at Bennett’s parents’ house and 200 guests at the Legion Hall.

 

 

What creative or personal aspects did you include in your wedding?

With our rustic winter themed wedding, quite a bit of the décor was free, although it took hours to gather and/or cut to size.  All of the wood for the arbors, the wood rounds for the centerpieces, entryway, dessert table, etc. as well as the pinecones, were gathered on Bennett’s parents’ property or from other places in the area.  We were very fortunate to have so many people help us with these projects!  Also, we each have two nieces, so it was wonderful to dress them as our flower girls, or the Frozen princesses they thought they were!

 

 

What was the biggest thing you did to save money?

The venue.  Getting married at Bennett’s parent’s house was free!  We would have loved to have the reception there as well, but it just wasn’t possible to fit 200 people in the house.  And while it would be perfect to have a summer outdoor wedding and reception there, we couldn’t obviously make it work during the winter.  We rented the American Legion Hall for only $100 for dinner and the reception, and the group  involved at the Legion Hall catered the meal.

 

 

What’s the best advice you have for planning your wedding now that you’re on the other side?

Enjoy the day!  Everyone told me that the wedding day will fly by, and it’s true!  Keep in mind that if you are organized and prepared, it will be much easier to take time to enjoy each moment.  The makeup, hair, and mimosas, the first look with your partner, the vows, chatting with friends and family…

 

 

What was your biggest splurge?

Splurge on photography!!  Why spend all the money on dresses, suits, jackets, décor, etc., if you don’t have someone there to get great photos of them?  I’ve only been married for 6 weeks, and I love going through our wedding photos for the memories already!  Plus, it’s great if your photographers capture little moments that you didn’t realized happened!

 

 

What was your favorite detail?

I wore 2 different fur coats for photos outside. One belonged to my grandmother and one belonged to Bennett’s grandmother.  I also wore a pin of the great grandmother’s in my hair.  My engagement/wedding ring was Bennett’s great grandmothers.   I loved having little pieces of history with us that day!

 

 

What is the most memorable moment of your day?

The first look!  Standing out there in 30 degrees with my wedding dress, not even cold at all, waiting for my soon to be husband to turn around and see me!
